1. Resistance bands. One of the easiest things to toss right into your suitcase and the most versatile piece of equipment that you can take along with you. You can do chest presses, bicep curls, tricep extensions; any free weight exercise that you perform can be performed with the resistance bands. Plus, they’re inexpensive and add no additional weight to your suitcase.
2. Jump rope. What a great way to fit cardio in with your resistance training; and they take up practically no room at all. Do two resistance moves (with your bands) and then throw in 90 seconds of jumping rope to increase your caloric burn for one circuit. Repeat until you have done at least three circuits and you’ve got yourself a great workout that will keep you looking fabulous in that cute little sundress.
3. Sneakers or sand shoes good for running. What better place to run than on the beach! Get up early and experience the sunrise while getting a good workout in, it will get your day started off right!
